EPO Cera found in Piepoli B-sample

Hopes of clearing his name shattered

Italian cyclist Leonardo Piepoli, one of seven riders to fail a drugs test at the Tour de France, saw his hopes of clearing his name shattered last Friday when his B-sample showed traces of banned blood booster EPO Cera, the French anti-doping sgency (AFLD) said.

Piepoli tested positive at the end of the 10th stage of this year's Tour and was then dumped by his Saunier-Duval team.
